  • RFQ for Public Art in California
    August 18, 2019
    Deadline: September 18

    Alameda Point Partners invites artists or artist teams to submit qualifications to create public artwork to be incorporated at two locations at Alameda Point. Alameda Point is a former Naval Air Station in the island city of Alameda, California.

    The budget for this initiative is $300,000.

Site A is the first phase of the ambitious redevelopment of the former naval base.

  • Call for Photography on the Question, "Who Are You?"
    August 18, 2019
    Deadline: September 22

    The Colorado Photographic Arts Center invites photographers to submit work that addresses the question, "who are you?"

    Identity is forged by powerful internal and external forces that may be summed by the dichotomy "nature vs. nurture." That tidy description elicits numerous questions: is identity defined by ethnicity or race? Is it influenced by where we live? Is identity performative, demonstrated through personal or cultural rituals including food, clothing and music? How does gender influence identity? Is it strictly personal, or do we derive identity through national association or ideology?

    Alternately, what does it mean to resist physical and psycho-social constructions of identity?

    For this expansive open call, we invite you to submit work that reflects your understanding or interrogation of identity, how it is constructed or deconstructed, and what bearing identity has in ongoing cultural dialogues.

    Details and an online application can be found here.

    August 18, 2019
    Deadline: October 1

  • Call for Public Sculpture
    August 17, 2019
    Deadline: October 5

    The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is seeking proposals for an outdoor sculpture of a falcon.

    Strong preference will be given to the proposal that can have the artwork installed by May 2021. If that deadline is not achievable, submit a proposed deadline for installation.

    The sculpture will reside outside a newly renovated building, which will become a gateway to the university. As the university mascot is a Peregrine falcon, the sculpture should be a depiction of a falcon, but not the school’s mascot. It is intended that this sculpture may become somewhat of a talisman-like focal point, where visitors, students and their families may take photos.

    Artists are urged to consider physical placement, lighting, material and size in their proposals.

    Budget: $75,000–$100,000 for conceptualization, creation and installment.

    Details and an online application can be found here.
  • Call for Artwork Inspired by Día de los Muertos and Strong Women
    August 17, 2019
    Deadline: September 10

    The Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas will present the 33rd Annual Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead art exhibition, October 12-November 16. The show features local, regional and international artists working in traditional and contemporary styles to celebrate, explore and honor people, things and ideas that have "passed on."

    The Día de los Muertos exhibition features Day of the Dead altars and visual art in a variety of media. For years, the Bath House Cultural Center celebration of the Day of the Dead has inspired many artists to create artwork that is moving, awe-inspiring and diverse. Given the multifaceted aspects of the Day of the Dead, artists have always had the opportunity to explore the celebration from multiple perspectives. The Center applauds the artists who, over the years, have created a richly eclectic collection of art for its annual exhibition.

    Since 2014, the center has directed artist to turn their focus to a particular component of the ancient Mexican Día de los Muertos tradition. This thematic emphasis not only gives the public a chance to appreciate historically accurate elements of the celebration that are not explored as frequently, but also enables artists to draw inspiration from sources that they had possibly not considered in the past.

    The works featured in the 2019 Día de los Muertos exhibition will be inspired by the Day of the Dead character, Catrina, and by the legacy of other prominent women.

    Details and an online application can be found here.
  • Call for Art Inspired by Discarded Materials
    August 17, 2019
    Deadline: September 12

    What is the relationship between recycling and art?

    We constantly seek out ways to deal with what we produce, consume and discard. The aesthetic potential of trash is well established in artistic practice. It's had its place in avant-garde since the early twentieth century, when Marcel Duchamp introduced the idea of the readymade: discarded, modified works, remanufactured and displayed as an art.

    Site:Brooklyn is seeking artists whose practice continues to investigate the relationship between discarded materials and art. We are looking for works across all mediums.

    ABOUT THE JUROR:
    Jean Shin is nationally recognized for her monumental installations that transform everyday objects into elegant expressions of identity and community. Her work has been widely exhibited in over 150 major museums and cultural institutions, including solo exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC.

  • Call for Art Inspired By a Vision of Health Equity
    August 1, 2019
    Deadline: August 30

    To prepare for the opening of the Center for Health Equity, the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg will invite one dozen Pinellas County artists to create a work of visual art depicting their vision of health equity in the community.

    Health equity is a powerful concept yet a simple one. It means that everyone has a fair chance to achieve their best possible health, regardless of their race, ethnicity, income level, gender or where they live, work or go to school.

    In reality, many individuals and communities experience extra hardship and disadvantages because systems and policies that touch their lives are built on a foundation of inequality. From one zip code to another, people in our communities live dramatically different lives. Too many people fall behind and experience poor health because of where they live, a lack of opportunity, or bias and discrimination.

    What would it look like if everyone in Pinellas County had what they need to be healthy? Things such as clean water, safe neighborhoods, good schools and access to healthy foods, to name a few.

    We’re calling on artists to envision what that state of health equity looks like to them. We believe that art and artists can use their creativity to guide, encourage, challenge and question us all as we strive for a more equitable and fair community that supports the health of all its citizens.

    We encourage looking at health through a very broad lens. Everything in our environment contributes to health—or represents a barrier to it. Health is more than healthcare.

    We hope you will be inspired to view things in a new light and create art that will share that vision of health equity.

    Details and an online application are available at healthystpete.foundation.

    Deadline: August 23 at 5 pm

    The Clearwater Arts Alliance invites Tampa Bay area artists with experience in creating public art murals to apply to create a mural promoting mental health, healing and resilience.

    The project is a mural that will be located at 1196 Court St., on the NW corner of Court St and Missouri Ave. in Clearwater. The mural is to be painted on the front of the building, mostly on the upper portion above the bay windows, wrapping around the portico and coming down a small sliver of wall before the first bay window to the left of the portico.  The building has significant window and rolling garage door openings that cannot be painted, but should be creatively incorporated into the final design. The Artist shall also install a UV cover over the finished artwork that protects the work from sun damage for a minimum of 5 years.

    The selected artist will collaborate with representatives of Directions for Living’s #NoShame group to develop an abstract, graphic interpretation of the group's experiences with mental wellness, healing and resilience. After this collaboration, the artist shall submit a design for approval to the Property Owner.  We prefer bright colors and bold, strong lines.

    PROJECT BUDGET AND PAYMENT TIMELINE: The total budget for the project will be $8,500 and covers the artist’s fee, materials, equipment, travel costs and liability insurance. Payment will be made in installations--¼ upon approval of design and before installation, ¼ when mural is half completed, and the remaining ½ upon completion of the project to the property owner’s satisfaction.

    To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking.

  • Funding for Projects on the Teaching Power of the Arts
    June 21, 2019
    The Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation is accepting applications for its Philanthropic Arts (“P/Arts”) Program.

    In its inaugural year, the program seeks to promote the teaching power of the arts and invites applicants from Florida, New York, New England or the District of Columbia who have a good idea for how the arts and education can be combined to create a more immersive and engaging atmosphere for learners.

    The program’s primary goals are to enhance or transform outdated school curricula; motivate and engage children, students and alternative learners; deepen professional development for teachers, professors and childcare workers; create linkages between school and home; encourage evidence-based art-based instruction; and help close the achievement gap.

    Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of programs dedicated to strengthening and rebuilding visual and performing arts programs, as well as ideas that create or expand on existing art programs.

    Programs or initiatives should be based on the use of the arts and arts education to teach core academics in a qualified education program within a public school, private school, university or public charitable organization.

    The foundation is also interested in promoting programs and ideas where the arts are being used in early childhood education, in university and community colleges, and in the engagement of alternative learners. Proposed or existing programs must impact at least thirty children or students within the first six months of implementation and no fewer than sixty by the end of the first year.

    Grant decisions for the program will be made on a monthly rolling basis until the final deadline of October 31, 2019.

    Complete program guidelines and application instructions can be found at ctbfoundation.org/parts-program.

  • Open Call for Singers - One City Chorus
    September 21, 2018
    St. Petersburg's award-winning One City Chorus was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding.

    We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. Everyone is welcome - we have no auditions.

    We have a great season planned. We’ll once again be singing songs with themes about social justice, civil rights, and diversity – songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, “Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the Doobie Brothers’ “Takin’ It to the Streets”, Neil Diamond’s “America”, U2’s “In the Name of Love” and other wonderful songs by less-widely-known artists.

    We’ll be singing a concert in the circular Sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Clearwater on December 1, and we’ll be singing again at St. Pete’s First Night celebrations on December 31 at the United Methodist Church. On February 17 is our annual concert at the Palladium Theater.

    Rehearsals are every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum –2240 9th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.

    We ask that our singers contribute $20/year to help defray some of our costs. We sing all of our songs “off-book” without sheet music and we have rehearsal recordings of all the parts online. This helps folks who don’t read music well to learn their parts, and it also helps people who have joined us later in the year to catch up.

    For more information, visit our website at onecitychorus.org.

  • Grants for Student Artists
    March 27, 2018
    FUNDING FUTURES 
    STUDENT ARTS OPPORTUNITY GRANT PROGRAM

    Talented students who aspire to be exceptional musicians, actors or visual artists are often faced with financial need that prevents them from pursuing a career in an artistic field after school or during the summer.

    A small grant award can make a world of difference to a student who otherwise would not have the chance to succeed in his or her arts field.

    The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is committed to supporting young talent, just as we support ACE, Arts for a Complete Education, for Pinellas County arts education in public schools.

    Who is eligible: Any artist 10-18 in the categories of dance, cinematic arts, jazz, music, digital arts, photography, theater, visual arts and voice.   Students must be residents of Pinellas County.  Funds are awarded to arts program organizations located in St. Petersburg only.  Funds may be used for:
    • Tuition for summer arts programs
    • Musical instruments rental, purchase or repair
    • Dance shoes, music books and arts supplies
    • Individual instruction or adult master class tuition
